The online SARS-CoV-2 or the COVID-19 pandemic taking place globally, occurs as a result of the SARS-CoV-2 viral infection that has caused death of innumerable numbers of people and is responsible for a massive drop in the Global Economy. Millions of people are infected with a steep increase in death rate. So, there is an urgent requirement of the invention of some effective and efficient drugs that can prevent the deadly viral infection. Throughout the world, there have been many efforts carried out in different labs to invent such a drug and also identifying any pre-existing drugs which can fight against the virus. In this review, an attempt has been made to understand the drug biology used against the SARS-CoV2 viral infection and the potential drug targets against SARS-CoV-2. Again, the strategies on the current and the future drug discovery mechanisms against the SARS-CoV-2 are also mentioned. It also lists the varied drugs made, drugs re-used and also the drugs under development in different research laboratories across the world.
